More and more people around the world are willing to understand the extent of their Internet and technology dependence. Some simply disconnected from the network from time to time and call that digital detox. Digital detox is a recognised global trend, but it hasn’t been fully studied so far. Why are we constantly pulled to the Internet, how technology is changing our social life and mankind itself? What are the new feelings we experience online? What processes technology triggers within our psyche and how we
can efficiently live in a digitalised world?
This project is an attempt to answer all these questions. It’s based on the results from our studies of a daily Internet and gadgets usage experience. We researched ordinary users, artists, developers, designers and even monks. Furthermore, we’ve analysed and processed technology research materials and thoughts from media philosophers.
Our vocabulary determines our thinking and our thinking determines our actions. This project is aimed to give us new words and concepts that will help to understand what happens when we take gadgets into our hands and connect to the Internet.
